Newcastle United and Arsenal are reportedly in a race to sign Everton midfielder Amadou Onana this summer.

Everton are ready to let the 22-year-old Belgian midfielder leave for £60 million this summer, according to journalist Ekrem Konur.

Spanish giants Barcelona have also shown interest in the highly-rated midfielder, but are reportedly not prepared to meet the £60 million asking price.

Reports in the January transfer window linked Manchester United with a move for Onana, that would include Scott McTominay moving the other way, but they are now looking elsewhere.

Onana is under contract at Everton until 2027 after signing a five-year contract when he joined the club.
